Destress Festival 2014
Drimmelen – Netherlands
Last May 3rd, the first edition of Destress Festival – Escape from reality was held in Drimmelen, in the south of Netherlands.
Destress festival demanded power and richness at low frequencies. This requirement was reached thanks to 16 x X218W subwoofers which achieved a total power of 38,400 W and 12 x line array systems + 4 x X215W subwoofers per side, with a total of 36,000 W for high and mid frequencies + 19,200 W more for the low ones.
4 + 4 X208 line array systems with two P18SWA subwoofers were used as DJ monitors.
“The coverage was amazing! We had 116 db at the FOH, it was 35 m away from the stage” said Ferry Caron, sound technician and owner of HMF Sound & Light BV.
You can see the event’s main configuration in one of the gallery’s images taken from the desktop application DSP Studio 2 which utilises a bespoke control protocol that supports Wi-Fi connectivity (control over IP) to control Xcellence series systems. There is also an iPad version: DSP Studio App.
This new and exciting event had great performances of 16 artists which featured the hardest sets from the whole european dance scene as hardstyle, hardcore & raw.
Some of the most popular artists for this event were: Ruthless, Darkraver, The Viper, E-Force, Luna, Frequencerz, Nosferatu…
